Pinkbike Poll: Does the Current Method of Mountain Bike Classification Make Sense?
We just need a reference value that all bikes can be compared upon. Shreaddiness (S) = (Travel x Wheelbase)/Headtube Angle. S = How shred ready the bike is (I guess the units are mm^2/degree :/ ) Travel = Rear Suspension Travel (mm) Wheelbase = Size Medium, (mm) Headtube Angle = You guessed it. (Degrees) For example, Slash comes out with 2973 S, or 2.973 kS. Remedy = 2.303 kS This way trails can be rated for a certain ideal kS, and you only have to ask where the customer wants to ride to be able to suggest the ideal bike.

Knolly Moves Entire Lineup to 157mm Spacing
No, only the rear wheel will fit properly. The front wheel will rattle around as it's designed for a wider through bolt and a narrower spacing :/

Ultra-Short Stems, Kids' Seats For Getting Rad, a DHX2 Remote Lockout Kit, and More - Tech Briefing, January 2018
@vinay: How often do people who land fully dead-sailored directly facing the floor not just fold and crumple into the ground without really exerting much force into the bars? Never? Everyone has the odd wild save, but realistically you are talking about something so rare it would be pretty memorable, versus probably over a hundred nearly vertical load cases every lap of freight train. You're experiment would be great and I think you'd be surprised how stiff it was. I highly doubt you'd need to rebond it to alleviate tensile forces, as these are again extremely low in almost any user load case. Whilst there is a tiny amount of flex in the stem which would allow your bar to exert a moment force using the near side of the stem a fulcrum and the opposite side balancing the moment force, this effect is likely negligible compared to how much of the force is opposed within the first few mm's of the stem's interface. Ultimately most bar wall thicknesses are kept the same throughout the clamping area because it's cheaper to produce that way, rather than butting these low stress areas to save single grams. Keeping any unfavourable geometry changes within the low stress area of the clamping zone makes far more sense than doing so in the very high stress areas outside of the clamping zone.

Seems you just roll the dice on the CREE lights. I have had two flawless ones for 5 years, some people had them set on fire during charging.. but £15 is really hard to argue with, even if you have to charge them on a baking tray!

The bar would experience negligible moment forces within the clamped area, with peak stress in the bar being at each edge of the stem clamp, on the top and bottom. Hence it makes sense to keep the bar stiff with a wide diameter cross section either side of the stem, but you can do whatever you want between those two points.
